2012 Kawasaki Brute Force 300 55W Driving Lamps

Recommended Posts

I installed 2 driving lights on the front of my 2012 300 Brute Force, My dad was walking by ,and added a comment " Better Watch it " you'll find yourself stranded. They are grounded , and the pwr wire goes thru a 2-pole simple switch.... on/off . I tapped into my cigerette lighter. Will that be a problem in the future it has a inline fuse. Does anyone think that adding a relay would be better than how i have installed it now ??? Comments would be appreciated !! Thanks All !!

Should be fine as long as you don't use the cigarette lighter at the same time and overload the circuit. Make sure you have an inline fuse.

Yep got a inline fuse. Just wanted to keep the switching simple, thats why i used the two pole switch. My winch when they installed it tapped into the cig. lighter as well. But i gotcha dont use cig. lighter when running lights, dont use winch with lights on ,,, and so on. One more question i can use my regular headlights on the atv when running the driving lights , can't i ? I would think it would be ok, since the only thing pulling is driving lights !!

      My father-in-law gave my boy a 1999 350 Big Bear. It's been sitting in a barn for a bunch of years. It runs great! My boy has been riding a couple weeks now and it has developed a squeal coming from the front end when you get off the gas at speed. No noise during acceleration. At first I thought brakes. I took it for a ride and I don't think it is the brakes. I feel it is the front prop shaft U-joints, front differential or one/both axles. I pulled the fill plug on the differential and I can't find anywhere how much gear oil should be in there. My gut says up to the fill opening. It doesn't have a manual. It's wet in there, just don't see any gear oil.

      #1 Should I fill the differential with gear oil up to the fill opening?

      #2 How do I check or know if the u-joints are bad? That looks like a "Big Bear" of a job if they don't need to be replaced.

      #3 What else could it be? I don't think it is the front bearings. I jacked the front wheels off ground and no play in the right wheel. Very little play in the left wheel, looks like the lower control bushing is where that play is coming from. The rubber CV boots look original but all still intact. Wheels spin easily without any noise.

      Thanks for any help!

      Hi all,
       
      Picked up my first Brute Force yesterday. What should have been an awesome afternoon of riding turn a bit into a deception. As I was unable to really take it out for a test drive at the shop, I decided to buy it and agreed that I would take the test drive at home. 
      When giving full throttle I noticed that the Brute was choking and lost all of its powers. Faulty fuel pump most likely. 
      Called the shop and the are coming to pick it up and repair it and bring it back. Good service. Nevertheless feels a bit sour in the mouth as I was told it was a 100% good. 
      Need to have some patience I now before I can really start riding. 
      Cheers,
      Erik

      If you're getting that pesky leaky seal on the pinion of your front differential and the pinion has allot of play, polaris won't sell the bushing needed to repair it properly without having to shell out big bucks for the complete ring and pinion kit. 
      I have a kit with an upgraded bushing, Japanese made bearing and USmade seal
      50 shipped in the US and 55 to Canada

      Hi bought a 2012 kingquad ASI last year a great machine which is a delight to ride, but I find sometimes it doesn’t go into top gear just revs high at about 42mph. Any idea ???
